Why Motor Trend loves high-speed rail

David Levitan’s autonomous car piece reminded me of an op-ed Motor Trend ran last year supporting high-speed rail. Their reasoning? HSR would forestall autonomous automobiles—which many car enthusiasts hate with a passion—by freeing up space on jammed roads. Those who actually like to drive would get to do so instead of idling along.
